Brooklyn Real Estate Six Months Later: Two Sold, One in Contract


    Here’s a look at how three of our featured listings from six months ago fared on the market.

    Starting us off, we have a wood-frame standalone built circa 1863 with a somewhat tangled recent past. It’s at 56 Cambridge Place, in the Clinton Hill Historic District, and offers quite a bit of potential for a buyer with vision and deep pockets. This former House of the Day sold in January for $2,769,924, which was $1,730,076 below the asking price.

    After that, there’s a Bed Stuy brownstone built circa 1892, that has a lovely and distinctive “bookend” facade with a metal cornice and a curved projecting bay. Romanesque/Renaissance Revival in style, it’s at 297 Hancock Street, in the Bedford Historic District. This former House of the Day entered contract in May.

    Wrapping it up, a two-bedroom Brooklyn Heights co-op that’s more dramatic than average, thanks to its berth in a converted Gothic church, built circa 1850. A duplex with a private entrance, it’s at 99 Clinton Street, which was refashioned and split into 10 units in the 1970s. This former Co-op of the Day sold in May for $1.7 million, which is $5,000 above the asking price.
